A HARSH REALITY
Almost 29% – unreached or least reached or least evangelized peoples who have little to no access to the gospel.
WHO IS ETHNÉ?
A global gathering that serves to keep the eyes of the church focused on the forgotten one-fourth of the world.
A NEW PHASE OF IMPACT
Book of Acts-Like Movements
For 30+ years, various approaches to Unreached People Groups have been tried. Yet, the percentage and population of those who have no access have grown –1.2 billion with no access in the mid-80s to 29% and 2.2 billion today!
Global UPG focus and prayer efforts were launched in the late 70s and early 80s. God invited us to pray and act – and responded to our obedience in prayer and action. God has shown He will start “Book of Acts-like movements” with those who are willing to do whatever God asks to disciple whole people groups. In the last ten-plus years we have seen the Disciple-Making Movements (the process) – also called Church Planting Movements (the result) – bring growth in numbers and impact we have not seen before.
WE MUST CHARGE FOWARD
A Comprehensive & Holistic Approach which Exceeds Population Growth. . .
Movements have been proven to be the only comprehensive and holistic approach which exceeds population growth numerically and which stimulates active transformation of these societies from within both in holistic and financially sustainable ways.
The Impact: Global researchers are tracking at least 1900 movements where churches by the hundreds and thousands are changing their society from within. We celebrate this miraculous progress and are looking do what God asks us to do to accelerate these movements and to see Him launch more movements among all other UPGs where little or nothing is happening.
A QUICK LOOK BACK
Although delayed over two years by the CoVid pandemic, we celebrate that we can now complete the meeting cycle by returning to hold Ethnê2023 again in SEAsia where it began.
In 2001, at the Great Commission Roundtable meeting in Port Dickson, Malaysia, a number of us committed to work together globally to bring the Gospel to all Unreached People Groups. We formed a network called ETHNÉ; a global network of “UPG- focused” mission leaders. Good things have emerged from each following global gathering (2006 in Bali; 2009 Bogota; 2012 in Seoul; 2015 in Hyderabad ; 2018 in Malta).
• CELEBRATING Great Commission Progress among the Least-Reached Peoples.
• ASSESSING Current Opportunities and Resources.
• ACCELERATING Movements to Christ Amongst All Peoples.
